Garlic Chive Flowers

Garlic chives are a hardy perennial plant with edible flowers and stem leaves.  The round heads of tiny white star-shaped flowers look beautiful in any type of garden. The flat, grasslike leaves are most often used finely chopped to add to salads, or any savoury cooked meals, particularly sauces, soups, casseroles, butters, oils and vinegar.  The white flowers are attractive additions to the garden and can be added to any savoury dish for both flavour and visual interest.  Growing Garlic Chives is common in China, Japan and Korea where they often used in stir fries, soups and Chinese dumplings.
